There are many types of patrons these days, I mean many types of diets that patrons are following. I have personally experimented with many diets over the years. One of my favorite diets happens to be the raw food diet. Raw foodists are probably onre of the hardest patrons to take care of with a well thought out meal. Most vegans are happy with mushrooms, rice and some other vegetable. But now try to take care of vegan without cooking any of the food.
A raw foodist will typically not eat food that has had been heated past 118F. The real challenge is that lots of ingredients that we would think are raw really are not raw. For example most raw almonds or cashews are not raw for a raw foodist. Cashews are steam extracted and almonds are heat or chemical treated. Lots of people think that milk or cheese is raw but those are all pasteurized. And most raw foodists will not consume dairy. I explain all of this in the video attached.
Why do people eat raw food? Most people eat raw food for added nutrition. The vital life force of the food is intact. Enzymes are key to nutrition for these people. I have personally seen people drop 200lbs on a raw food diet over the course of a year. It is amazing to see this kind of transformation. When I eat raw I have an significantly increased energy level.
I have attached a video that goes into more detail on raw food. I mention a couple of easy recipes that can be made in minutes. As a general rule I keep couple of raw options on my menu that are under the vegan selections.

Pick up a book, magazine or screen, and more than likely you'll come across some typography designed by Matthew Carter.

Astronomers believe that every star in the galaxy has a planet, one fifth of which might harbor life. Only we haven't seen any of them -- yet. Jeremy Kasdin and his team are looking to change that with the design and engineering of an extraordinary piece of equipment: a flower petal-shaped "starshade" that allows a telescope to photograph planets from 50,000 kilometers away. It is, he says, the "coolest possible science."
Puberty is an awkward time for just about everybody, but for transgender teens it can be a nightmare, as they grow overnight into bodies they aren't comfortable with.

By staving off the effects of puberty, Spack gives trans teens the time they need. (Filmed at TEDxBeaconStreet.)

In this honest talk, she offers some kinder and more achievable aims.
